I feel like I'm looking through your sunglasses!
Bill Phillips: I see what you mean. This has an orange filter applied to it!

That's a helluva ship to navigate into this little pond, Bill...
Bill Phillips: It is a canal Ray. I have no idea why they were using 50ft poles
i stand corrected Bill and apologize for saying to get your £11.95 back... this is a fantastic composition and your Holga has gently brought the colours to life....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter. I used an orange filter

You are having so much fun, Bill...and so am I, watching you with your new toy. smile
Bill Phillips: I have just bought a flashgun. I am taking wedding pictures and they will all be inside possibly. The built in camera flash isn't up to much so I bought a half decent one. Tried it yesterday and it seems to work quite well. I wonder how it would work with Holga?

Good heavens - I can actually see specific things in this picture!
Bill Phillips: Perhaps your eyes are becoming accustomed

I hope you took some pictures of 'the catch of the day...'
I have to say it is a good picture, there is something nostalgic about it smile
Bill Phillips: I didn't see anybody catch anything!

what a long fishing rod! A fine, atmospheric photo with all the reed along the water -this is the best Holga picture Some ducks on the lake/pond could the icing on the cake!
Bill Phillips: They reached to the other side of the canal and had no reel. I know nothing about angling so have no idea what they were for!

The colours etc remind me even more of books showing countryside views about 80 years ago, although the figures are modern - and I am not being unkind - I have quite liked this week's pictures
Bill Phillips: I know what you mean. We get books like that donated to our book sale...Britain in colour!
You just might have something here young man, i wonder what a beach shot would look like .
Bill Phillips: Tricky to try living in Worcestershire

Steeped in nostalgia Bill. I presume the long rod is to be able to fish the other bank without having to cast (on account of the trees behind)
Bill Phillips: I know even less about angling than Mick Shaw thinks I know about photography Mike grin
Best of the series Bill IMO, the "effect" works well here in a retro sense!
Bill Phillips: 1960's instamatic processed by Boots
Today might be the last in the Holga series.
Bill Phillips: It might and for you it will be unless you suddenly start doing weekends
I really like this one Bill. Great atmosphere!
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Richard
This one is quite nice. Reminds me of old photos. I can't understand this long fishing pole.
Bill Phillips: I thought it had the look of badly processed colour from the 60;s
Very retro. Fishing poles are so amusing, instead of fishing twelve inches from the near bank these guys fish the same twelve inches from the far bank. It's a good job fishermen never fish both sides on the canal - it would then get complicated !
Bill Phillips: Fishing is totally beyond me. No one seemed to be catching anything
This is definitely the best of the bunch so far Bill, the built in vignette really works. It has also prompted a discussion of a pole for fishing, my son used to have one bit got fed up with all the messing about.
Bill Phillips: It is all totally foreign to me Brian

This guy has a very long pole. He can swat a fish anywhere in the water.
Bill Phillips: Perhaps they also vault across the canal when the fish aren't biting

Hhaha at Chris; my thoughts, too! I ewas just concerned that you appeal to have your hand or something masking the left side of the image.
Bill Phillips:'s what Holga does best!
This is even more better, Bill; the subject helps (I'm mad on the sport) smile
Bill Phillips: It is a total mystery to me Martin grin
Love the aged vintage look of this one, Bill. Had I been there, my curiosity would have gotten the best of me and I would have asked them what they were up to.
Bill Phillips: I don't think they would have been too pleased if I had as they were having a competitiongrin

Damn it man .. a decent composition at last
Bill Phillips: All part of the experimental process Mr Trim
You're getting there. I've had these pole things explained to me but still don't understand. I just trip over them.
Bill Phillips: I have no idea what they are all about

This works rather well, interesting how the old fashioned 'Roach pole' has come back as a popular method.
Bill Phillips: Roach....that's a type of fish isn't it?
